    Adapting a carbide finish cutter.....

    When Vaughn was here last week I tried his easy rougher and sliced my fingers (not bad) wiping off the dust etc, from the cutter. Then I realized I was planting my DNA in his foam handle with my blood.

    I like my hand held hollowing tool made by Jeff Nicol and thought I have to get some carbide on there. Jeff sent me a round tip and a square one too, made from old saw blade, but I have not come up with a good jig to sharpen them. Yes, I have the mini monster but I still like using this tool to smooth out HF's.

    I adapted it with just a small washer under the cutter and used the screw that came with my rig (larger diameter) and tightened her down. $18 +tax.
    Cheap and easy carbide finisher!

    Cool. You're gonna love the EWT carbide cutter. I've got the unhandled Ci0, and the shank fits into the Monster rig. Works great for finishing cuts.

    I thought I would do the Ci1 square rougher and the R4 while I was in tinkering mode. Hope to give them all a spin this weekend. I had to make a little more room for the cutter and thought I might want to put a flat spot on both holders to help prevent slipping and turning. These will fit in my mini monster as well!

    Let us know how it works sounds like a good idea
    First you have to learn the rules - Beginner
    Then you have to learn advanced rules - Professional
    Then you disregard the rules - This takes you to the master level................

    Sounds like a plan. I use the hunter carbide cutter in both my monster units.
